Return of the Impe

Our favorite crackpot evangelist Jack Van Impe and his merry robo-wife in cake make-up have returned to remind us how crazy they are. This time he seems to be advocating the bombing of movie theaters that dare to even think about showing the upcoming movie version of The DaVinci Code. His trademark eye-poppery and incessant bible verse quoting are back in full force:

Watch my favorite clip from the show. (6MB .wmv)

Even more disturbing than his rabid zealotry is when he refers to himself as a "woman pleaser". If that doesn't make you vomit a little into your mouth, I don't know what will.

I happen to believe that Jack Van Impe and his kind (e.g. Arthur Blessitt, Jerry Falwell, the authors of the Left Behind series, etc.) are amongst the lowest ranks of civilized humanity. But I don't advocate bombing them. That's just one of the ways in which I am not as crazy as they are.

[Thanks to Alan for the tip]

I bet he talks just like that when he orders food at McDonald's.

I love the general threat posed when something is a MOVIE rather than a book. I mean, who reads those anymore, jeez!

Dan, I'm just glad you've found these "crackpot" evangelical websites so that you will know where to go for information after the rapture occurs and you see that they were not so crazy after all.

Crackpot is putting it nicely. How about dipshit?

He started out on a roll...kinda reminded me of a Kentucky Derby announcer.

maybe if you come out of your constant alcohol induced stupor you might be able to clearly hear the message and think on these issues.

He has always facinated me. On his show, he takes various news items from around the world only to spin it to fit his armageddon agenda. He does it with so much zeal and bible quote back ups that gives him so much credibility. I was floored when I saw him go on and on about horrible disasters with a sad face and then suddenly bring out the sunshine with "friends, Jesus is coming".
Yeah? If Jesus is doing a homecoming, why doesn't he do it with streamers and balloons ? Well, maybe he likes to put on a good show.
To me, Impe is swine. He preys on the elderly and/or the nearly dead with his head spinning scare tactics.
